Black Meteors

Ghana Scores Late To Hold Cameroon In U-23 Opener


Ghana Black Meteors scored three minutes from full time to hold Cameroon to a 1-1 draw at the Cairo International Stadium as both sides shared spoils in the Group A Match Day 1 of the ongoing Total U-23 Africa Cup of Nations Egypt 2019.

While things seemed settled in favor of Les Lions Olympiques who took the lead through Frank Evina at the hour mark, Mohamed Habib made use of a scramble inside Cameroon’s goal area to give his side what looked as a fair point.

The first half was a story of scarce chances as both sides rarely threatened each other to go to the break with a barren stalemate.

Evina broke the deadlock at the hour mark in a brilliant way. He sent a curling free-kick to beat the defensive wall and Ghana’s goalkeeper to give Cameroon the lead.

But when everyone thought Cameroon had won the game, Habib equalized for the Black Meteors. A long ball was deflected from the defense to find Habib who shot to get his side a point.

Total Man of the Match: Evans Mensah (Ghana)
